The power transmission specialists at Mayr have developed a new concept that makes safety brakes fit for the future. According to the company, what it calls Brake Technology 4.0 refers on the one hand to a technologically leading friction system that, together with consistently considered safety principles, stands for reliable, safe brakes with an extremely high performance density. On the other hand, firmly connected to this system are monitoring modules of the latest generation, such as the Roba-Brake-Checker or Roba-Torqcontrol, which allow permanent brake monitoring and are said to make safety brakes fit for the challenges of Industry 4.0. The perfectly coordinated overall combination not only ensures the utmost level of operational and functional safety, but also increases the productivity of machines and systems through preventative fault detection and maintenance. The new concept will be presented at EMO Hannover 2017.
